He brings a wealth of experience and a passion for disability advocacy to our partnership. His dedication to promoting inclusivity and equal opportunities aligns perfectly with what we value most at Leap in!


As a Brand Ambassador, Dinesh will be instrumental in building relationships with Leap in! Members, families, providers and the broader community.

We believe that this partnership will raise awareness about how plan management can be more than a book-keeping function; it can play an important role in helping people to understand the NDIS, achieve their goals and to get the most out of their NDIS Plans.

We look forward to working closely with Dinesh and continuing our commitment to fostering a community of support for people with disabilities across Australia.” said Andrew.
